Dedicated to the discovery & publication of emerging writers.

We are very sad to say that Bird's Thumb is closing its doors for the foreseeable future. Since 2014 we have published hundreds of fine writers, many of whom have gone on to publish their first collections and to earn prestigious awards, many whose work we had the great honor of publishing first. This has been our labor of love. As writers first, we are both excited to return to our own journeys and hope we'll cross along new paths.

The site will remain live until March 2020. Our sincerest thank you to our generous supporters, our contributors, and readers.

Nina and Sahar
